Eggs Benedict

Eggs Benedict with Spinach

Whenever I go to a café for breakfast it is almost guaranteed that I will order Eggs Benedict, especially if it has spinach. It's definitely my all-time favourite breakfast. Here's a recipe!

You will need: 
2 eggs
2 handfuls of spinach (around 50g)
2 slices shaved ham (or salmon if you prefer)
1 English muffin (or your choice of bread) 

Hollandaise Sauce
(Recipe from taste.com.au)

2 egg yolks
2 teaspoons lemon juice
40g butter cut into small cubes

Here's what you do: 

For the sauce

  1. Whisk together the lemon juice and egg yolks in a heatproof bowl.
  2. Place bowl over a saucepan of simmering water using a low heat. Whisk until the mixture becomes thick and pale. 
  3. Add 1 cube of butter and whisk until melted. Repeat until you have used the remaining butter. 
  4. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper and set aside.

For the rest

  1. Heat a frying pan to a low heat then wilt the spinach.
  2. Meanwhile, cut your English muffin in half and toast. 
  3. Top your English muffin with the spinach and ham. 
  4. Fill a saucepan two-thirds full with water. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a medium low heat. 
  5. Stir the water to create a whirlpool. Break an egg into a small bowl then place gently into the whirlpool. Allow to cook for 3-4 minutes. Do not stir.
  6. Place onto one half of the English muffin.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 with the second egg. 
  8. Pour on the Hollandaise sauce and enjoy! 

If you love savoury breakfasts as much as I do you'll want to give this one a go. Try it this weekend! You can even make some cheeky meringues with the leftover egg whites. 
What's your favourite breakfast?
